  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat 2 cups sugar and eggs with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vinegar, and apricot jam. Pour in 2 cups of milk and stir until well combined. Spoon the batter into a greased, 2 quart oven-proof baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Pierce the baked pudding several times with a skewer or fork.
  4. Place 1 cup sugar, water, 1 cup milk, butter, and vanilla in a saucepan and stir over medium heat. When the mixture comes to a boil remove it from the heat and slowly pour the mixture over the hot pudding. Serve warm.

This is a wonderful, The first time I made it for about 100 people, mostly teenagers for an International dinner. Many come and told me how wonderful it was. It can be a little scary as you put ...

I think this is a lovely warm pudding for the winter. I am South African and we often had this pudding for dessert. I would use a little less sugar as it tends to be on the sweet side. Enjoy it.

This is a wonderful warm dish to have! I made this last year for my girl scout troop and I ended up giving the recipe to three people! We all loved it!
